HC Deb 17 July 1907 vol 178 cc678-9

To ask Mr. Chancellor of the Exchequer if he will set out the purposes and objects for which loans have been guaranteed by the Imperial Government to self-governing Colonies, at what rate such loans were issued and guaranteed, and what sum thus guaranteed still remains outstanding.

(Answered by Mr. Asquith.)—

The net amount outstanding is in each case taken to be the gross sum outstanding, less the nominal amount of the securities held on account of Sinking Fund.
